Pastor Gary Gulbranson
What is perspective? The term literally suggests “looking through…seeing clearly.” One who views life through perspective lenses has the capacity to see things in their true relationship or relative importance. He sees the big picture. He is able to distinguish the incidental from the essential…the temporary from the eternal…the partial from the whole…the trees from the forest.
One of the best gifts that followers of Jesus can offer the people with whom we live, work, and play is the gift of perspective.
I. Perspective is the ability to see clearly what was. (Vv. 1-4)
II. Perspective is the ability to see clearly what is. (Vv. 5-6)
III. Perspective is the ability to see clearly what will be. (Vv. 7-9)
Conclusion: “The wisdom (perspective) of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His precepts have good understanding (can see things clearly). To Him belongs eternal praise.” (Vv. 10)
